WE'RE DOING DECEMBER! Whether you pre-plan your December Daily or create as you go along in the Christmas month; make your own covers or decorate ready-made ones, use Project Life style with plastic sleeves and pockets or create your own pages.

Deb's December Daily Preparations...


I saw this Heidi Swapp Christmas Memory files album on sale through the year.  I picked it up, looked through it and LOVED it.  Then put it back because I thought it would not be suitable for my type of December Daily (which is usually thick and chunky).   BUT I went back to it and just had to have it as I loved the colours, papers and the variety of shaped pages and transparencies.

Look inside at all the gorgeous pages........

I knew that if I was to use it for my type of December Daily, I would need to make some alterations.
So firstly out came the spiral and I separated the larger pages and kept them with the covers to use as my daily pages,  keeping in mind that I'd like to also add in some different papers for extra pages.

and put the smaller pages aside to use as embellishments, photo matts and extras on the page.

I have started putting a few bits and pieces together in a box (things that I think might work for what I have planned).    I'm sure, as December gets a little closer, there will be a few more things added to the collection.   

So come the 1st December I will clear a place on my desk,  set out these supplies so they are all on hand and in sight, and I will be ready to go.............



Dont forget you can link your pre-planning or stash photos up

And if you have your Covers done....

And you can even share your  previous December Daily's
